12 Year Old Convicted in Masonic Fire

Crescent City Lodge before the tragic fire.

From KEIM-TV in California:

A 12-year-old has been convicted for the fire that burned the Masonic Temple in Crescent City (California) to the ground. Because it’s a juvenile the person responsible’s name cannot be released. The 12-year-old’s conviction is for felony arson, a charge that District Attorney Jon Alexander says carries a 2, 4, or 6-year sentence. Alexander also added that the Masonic Center was an integral part of the Crescent City community, and that the juvenile needs to be punished appropriately. Sentencing is August 27th.
